If you eat in Kentucky it’s pretty certain at some point you’re going to eat out. This episode I’m joined by Louisville based Kentucky Restaurant Association President and CEO Stacy Roof. Stacy has been with the KRA for a quarter century as an advocate for Kentucky’s restaurants. Stacy discusses the role of the KRA as a champion and resource for Kentucky’s restaurants and their on going lobbying efforts in Frankfort including a discussion of a possible restaurant tax bill about which she recently published an op-ed in the Courier Journal. Also, Stacy explains the KRA’s program that brings vocational restaurant education into Kentucky’s high schools and the wide open job market that awaits them in Kentucky’s growing food scene. There’s plenty more, including a reveal of an upcoming podcast guest, and I even get Stacy to divulge some of her own restaurant recommendations.
